All of us have different passions in life that we want to pursue. Most of the time we tend to neglect our passion in exchange for a job that we probably don’t like but we definitely need.
You might be thinking:
“Is this what I really want with my life?”
“Is this all there is to life?”
“Why am I not happy?”
“How can I make a difference in this world?”
If your answers to these questions don’t satisfy you, maybe it’s time that you change your path and do what you love to do.
If you’re the kind of person who loves working with people, helping and guiding them to become successful in what they do, you should consider a career as a Professional Coach!
What does a Professional Coach do?
A Professional Coach works with individuals and teams to help them:
• gain insight and self-awareness of their current situation;
• identify their needs or problems which are holding them back;
• goal set, action plan and motivate them until they achieve their desired future.
Professional Coaches use their existing strengths and expertise to guide clients towards their new future or career.
If you’re not sure as to what type of Professional Coach you would want to be, you can choose from these types:
Life Coach – someone who assists individuals gain clarity and direction, improve relationships and communication with others, and helps people achieve their desired goals.
Health, Wellness & Vitality Coach – works with individuals to help them live a healthier lifestyle, being fitter and having more energy to achieve their goals…
Business Coach – works with business owners, managers and supervisors to increase the number of customers, improve staff skills and maintain a healthy profit.
Career Transition Coach – works with individuals who are transitioning from one job to another, helps them overcome the emotions of change and recover their identity.
Leadership Coach – works internally in an organisation as a line manager or HR professional and coaches employees towards greater job satisfaction, improved team relations and peak performance.
Executive Coach – works in their own business and provides external coaching services to C-suite executives and managers. Someone who has the required level of corporate experience to be a ‘sounding-board’ to executives who need to make tough decisions in complex and uncertain environments.
Now that you know what type of Coach you can become, you might as well start the journey right now! If you’re afraid that things might not go as well as you hope, don’t be. If you’re certain that this will make you happy and you find the right coach-training partner to harness your passion and desire to make a difference then you have nothing to be afraid of.
Always keep in mind what Marc Anthony said: “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.”
